    do cyclists beg?

    I've been hit on by kids at the hardware store, mall, grocery store etc. asking for change to support their hockey, baseball, soccer, figure skating, swimming, gymnastic teams and probably 50 other things as well over the years but so far no cyclists. How do you think the mall manager will take my request for permission to solicit Saturday mornings so help defray the expenses of my hobby?
    Any roadie, trackie, MTBer kids begging at your mall?

    Of course they beg, how do you think they eat, Off there salaries? What salaries?
    So, if you're in the car, waiting impatiently. . . get over it - you're not that special.
